As if chocolate wasn’t fabulous enough as an edible, it is also serves as an amazing and deliciously smelling body scrub! All you need are three ingredients, Cocoa powder, sugar and olive oil. Just mix all the ingredients together, gently apply on the desired areas in small circular motions to exfoliate the skin, leave on for 15 minutes, and rinse. The antioxidants in the cocoa will help restore elasticity to the skin, fight ageing, provide hydration, and its properties will also help reduce skin breakouts. Bonus point, the caffeine in the cocoa powder can even give you an energy boost!
Enjoy this delicious treat 😉

Y’all – if you’re not using avocado for literally EVERY use in your life.. you’re missing out! I won’t take total credit for these “recipes” (Chantal is the resident beauty expert here), but I got to be the guinea pig and L-O-V-E-D all of this.
In case you didn’t know, you can use avocado in your meals (duh), for your face, and for your hair. Avocado is rich in healthy fatty acids, and can be extremely moisturizing externally. It also has potassium, letithin, and more minerals that nourish your body inside and out.
Avocado Hair Mask
1 1/2- 1 3/4 Avocado
2-3 tbsp Honey
2-3 tbsp Olive Oil
(Adjust ingredients based on how long your hair is)
Put on your hair for 20-30 minutes to hydrate! Then wash your hair as normal.
Avocado Face Mask
1-2 tbsp plain yogurt
1-2 tbsp honey
Place a THICK layer all over your face and leave on for 20-30 minutes! Once it’s dry, wash off and feel the difference!
Hopefully you try out these recipes to get all the benefits out of avocados. Have a great weekend!
Fight skin aging by sealing your pores after your face wash routine with a red wine ice cube! Red wine contains antioxidants that help restore collagen to maintain your face looking youthful and nourished. Let your skin absorb the wine and do not rinse. If you do this at night, it will even help you to go to sleep as red wine also contains melatonin. Just a couple more reasons to love wine, cheers!
